Earlier, the creative and media businesses were being handled by Crayons Advertising. The agency had been handling the brand for the past 12 years. However, in between, for a short while in 2005, the company had awarded the creative duties for convenience food brands to Everest Brand Solutions.

For the record, established in 1989, Kohinoor Foods deals with a wide assortment of food items including basmati rice, ready-to-eat, cook-in sauces, cooking paste, spices, seasoning and frozen foods. The company has presence in various countries including Canada, Australia, New Zealand, the UK, West Asia and Southeast Asian countries.
